life, love,art. heart failure and assorted ramblings

Don't Talk Like That...

I write to find out what my heart thinks....
I write to expose and work through the ugly parts of this disease, open heart surgery that was less than successful and more recently an S-ICD (internal cardiac defibrillator) implanted in my chest that will hopefully restore my heart beat in case of sudden cardiac death. I am here to celebrate my life, to uncover my fears, to hold on to love, to learn how to live a full life with heart failure, to honor my creativity, and to explore all of my emotions out loud ...before anyone can say
"Don't talk like that!"

This probably does not come as a big surprise for most people!  It appears to be my life condition that just about the time I think I have got things figured out, something (or someone) will happen that makes me feel like I have got it all wrong!  The fact is, according to the SOP (standard operating procedures) I probably do have it wrong, but I have to do what feels right in my own heart.  I am getting better at feeling more and more comfortable about speaking up for me, letting go of “stuff” even when it is not what others and the unspoken rules demand I do.  In the end, I have got to know in my heart that I did my best to find my own peace, to honor my purpose, to bring my gifts into the world and to be true to me.  I am the only one that can make those choices and yes, I imagine others think I am “tangled”.
